COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spiral Jetty India Pale Ale is the launching point in our series of hoppy IPA brews. Spiral Jetty IPA has an aggressive hop profile (five different hops used here with two in the dry hop) presenting citrus, floral, resinous or pine aromas and flavors typical of American hops and a nice pleasant, cleansing bitterness on the finish. The dominance of the hops helps to balance the complex malt flavors and the higher alcohol content. Spiral Jetty is our strongest Classic Series ale at 6.6% alcohol by volume, but certainly not our strongest beer.

Very hazy orange - amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is a little dry with fine carbonation. Malt is dry and a little grainy. Medium pine hops with a whisper of citrus. Dry finish, mildly bitter aftertaste. A bit dry and muted.

jmgreenuk (4337) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at WWT3. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak stale malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with loads of rich bitter liqourice and malt in the palate. The bitterness lingers well into the finish for a tasty and refreshing beer.
